Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic is scheduled meet Slovakia's top officials during his trip to the country on Tuesday, January 22, the TASR newswire learned from the Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič's press department.

Nikolic will begin his visit by meeting Gašparovič before attending an official lunch with Prime Minister Robert Fico. Later on, Nikolic's agenda includes talks with Slovak Foreign and European Affairs Minister Miroslav Lajčák.

"My meeting (with Nikolic) will mainly involve a more detailed exchange of views regarding the ongoing dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina," Lajčák told TASR. He went on to say that he expects the Serbian official to provide a more in-depth perspective into Serbia's perceptions of the process and its expectations vis-a-vis the European Union and Kosovo. "I'll ask what Slovakia can do to further the success of this process," said the minister, adding that he aims to receive a message from the meeting that he will then be able to pass on to Brussels. Nikolic is slated to wrap up his trip to Slovakia by attending a ceremonial dinner to be hosted by the Slovak president.
